Administrative Behavior in Implementing Educational Innovations.
Flanagan, John C.
Administrative behavior in implementing educational innovations is defined in terms of selecting, installing, evaluating, extending, and improving innovations in the administrator's system. It is suggested that on the basis of relevant facts, knowledge of alternative procedures, and careful plans, an administrator can select an educational innovation promising the most substantial improvements in areas of greatest student needs. The key to installing an innovation is advanced planning coupled with active participation of all individuals who will be involved. Successful improvement of innovations requires evaluation of types of instructional methods and materials so that broad knowledge about why one program is better than another is obtained. (TT)
